Articles Of Faith Bio:
Although from Chicago, AOF was not embraced by the original punk scene there. They had a bitter, public rivalry with the Effigies, whom they saw as suburban posers-skinheads with a closet right wing agenda (and who accused them as miming the DC hardcore sound). They did have allies, however, in like-minded Midwest bands like the Zero Boys, Die Kreuzen, and Hüsker Dü . Turned off by the age restrictions of the bar and club scene, AOF began booking DIY shows in the auditorium of the Chicago Centro-American Social Club. These shows gave life to an eclectic new underground punk scene and lasted until the band broke up in 1985. Vic Bondi also had a stint as a columnist in Maximumrocknroll.
